Original nineteenth century plaster cameo seals. Eight examples.

These ‘Grand Tour’ souvenirs were brought home by wealthy European travellers. Rome was the ultimate destination and a tour of the treasures contained in its many museums complemented a young man’s education. Collecting boxes and faux bindings containing plaster casts of ancient gems was a fashionable pastime and a valuable ‘aide memoir’ of the mythologies, gods and historical events depicted on the delicate cameos.

Presented in hand-gilded shadow box frames, lined with fine hand-made english marbled paper.

Framed size: 134mm x 134mm (5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches)
Styles / Movements Other, Traditional
